Obesity may affect fertility in young women, study suggests

A new study, covered by HealthDay News, suggests that women who become obese by the age of 18 are more likely to develop PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and become infertile than others.

The study surveyed the medical and sexual histories of 1,538 women who were undergoing bariatric surgery at US clinics and found that these obese young women also less likely to become pregnant than those who became obese at an older age.
